Taurus Art-Hostel
Zamocka 24-26
811 01 Bratislava 1

Stare Mesto / pod Hradom / near the Castle / Old Town

Most international trains stop at the main station Bratislava hlavna stanica that have good connections to public transport buses. Bus № 93 goes to the stop Zochova, walking to the hostel takes about five minutes (direction to the castle).

The other railway station is Bratislava-Petrzalka situated at the southern suburb about one hour from the city centre, this is the terminus for some trains coming from Vienna. From this railway station you need to take the bus № 93 to the stop Zochova (direction Hlavna Stanica). The stop of this bus is on the highway, so you would need to underpass the railway station.

The main bus station takes place on Mlynske Nivy. To get to the hostel you would need to take the trolleybus № 208 or № 206 and get off at Hodzovo Namestie (4stops). There change for the trolleybuses № 203 or № 207 and get off at Zamocka (3 stops). This stop is on request, so please push the button 'stop' inside of the vehicle. Then cross the street and walk down (the opposite way of the castle) and you will arrive to the hostel. Or the brave ones can take a 35-minute walk :)

If you come with the bus from Vienna, you may stop on:
Einsteinova stop - from the same stop take the bus № 80 to the stop Zochova (2 stops).
Most SNP - this place is just 10 minutes of walking from the hostel. Climb the stairs, go along the highway through the Zidovska street and then when you reach the point of the tramline / bridge / tunnel, continue walking up the hill, direction the castle.

The stop for public transport buses is situated in front of the airport. Take the bus № 61 to the Hlavna stanica (the main railway station, the last stop of this bus). From there use the same instruction which are written above (the section „by train“, first part).

The best way is to walk, it is max. 15 minutes walk to get to Zamocka.
Here is the plan:
When you get off the boat, take the street Vajanskeho nabrezie to Razusove nabrezie (to the bridge Most SNP – the one with „ufo“ on the top), there turn right and continue up on the street Staromestska and Zidovska until you arrive to the street Zamocka, where you will find the hostel. The check points on your way that might help: Ufo bridge, big cathedral, Castle, ...

If you are lost, just ask the people how to get to the CASTLE (our hostel is 5 minutes from it :)).
